Frugal Friday File 2017, week 6...

1.  I've had the car for two weeks and haven't had to buy gasoline yet.

2.  I got a call today booking a day of work at a branch I've not worked at before.  It's not till the end of April, but it's nice to have days booked ahead.  I have half of my annual minimum  required hours for 2017 booked now.

3.  I found several bags of black-eyed peas in the freezer.    Jared hates black-eyed peas, but he loves 15 bean soup.  Since the temperatures have dipped back into 'soup weather' range, I think I will make a pot of 15 bean soup for tomorrow's supper and hide some extra black-eyed peas amongst the other 14 kinds of beans.  :)

4.  A monthly work-related expense for Carey should decrease by about $60 a month going forward.

5.  I've had 4 items in my Amazon shopping cart for weeks.  They really are things I need, but not exactly imminently, so in the mean time money stays in my pocket.

Frugal From the Kitchen This Week:
Saturday:  homemade pizza
Sunday:  Sunday family dinner at Kasey's
Monday:  *dinner out at Antlers
Tuesday:  Dublin Coddle
Wednesday:  Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry
Thursday:  *burger

(*not-frugal takeout or dinner out)


  1. 15 bean soup sounds amazing! It was soup weather here yesterday but I think we're heading back into the 70s this weekend.

    1. Yeah, it turned warm here today, so I haven't put the soup on after all. It was cold yesterday. Crazy weather!

  2. I love bean soup and of course now have to ask the names of the other 14!

    1. Uhm, kidney, navy, pinto… I’m not sure, I buy a bag of Hurst’s HamBeens Brand 15 Bean Soup and follow the recipe on the package. :)

  3. I love the Ham 15 Bean Soup but my hubby does not. Hope we do get some soup weather.

  4. Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry is one of my ever favourite recipes. the other items in the menu looks good as well. nice blog post.

  5. my dearest aunt was from Texas and I loved her black eyed peas and occasionally have to have some just for old times sakes. I have really gotten out of the habit of menus and I lived by those for years. Trying to be more frugal here as well. You always prick at my conscience.
